Located in the heart of a peaceful 700-acre estate in the idyllic Surrey valley, lies the beautiful Marden Park, an exceptional elegant mansion in a wonderful setting.
At Woldingham School there’s an abundant selection of picturesque backdrops that are perfect for any wedding celebration. I love working at this spectacular venue because there are so many pretty locations and the grounds are maintained impeccably with plenty of pops of colour to help create interesting compositions.
Kirstin and John wanted a relaxed wedding with story-telling images to reflect upon so I was very honoured when they asked me to be their photographer for their wedding in July.
The lovely couple married in the atmospheric chapel and afterwards emerged to handfuls of petals to mark the occasion! After a large group shot of everyone on the steps I gave the newlyweds a brief tour of the pristine grounds for some romantic time away from their guests. We covered lots of areas in a short space of time and Kirstin and John looked very natural and relaxed in front of the camera. The fountain pond made for some magical images whilst their stroll around the pergola walk felt serene.
The guests gathered round during the drinks reception to kick back and congratulate the happy couple. There was a real sense of pride and excitement in the air and I captured lots of shots of the guests enjoying themselves.
The wood-panelled Goddard Room was the elegant setting for the wedding breakfast and some very funny speeches followed! We took some time afterwards to make a short walk up the hill to reflect upon the day and capture some scenic shots overlooking the grounds before it was time to get on the dance floor!
I had a fantastic time shooting Kirstin and Jon’s special day at Woldingham School and here’s a selection of images……
